Ruby Glitz Yarrow, Achillea milliafolium rubra.
One of the easiest perennials to grow from Yarrow seeds, this Achillea Rubra is marked by a unique colour of reddish pink cluster-like flowers.
The colour makes a beautiful addition to the summer sunny border and mixes beautifully with other colours.
For centuries the Yarrow herb was important for soldiers on the battlefield. In ancient battles, Yarrow herb plants were used to stop the flow of blood in wounded soldiers and to help the wounds heal.
Yarrow should be planted in full sun and is tolerant to hot, humid summers. Ruby red Yarrow can tolerate poor soil conditions, and does best in lean, dry to medium wet, well-drained soil. Avoid heavy clays and moist, rich, fertile soils.
